We are truly blessed to be surrounded by some of the best local and organic food producers in Ireland. To sample some the local produce, a visit to one of the many farmers markets is a must.
Every Tuesday there is a local market in the village of Sneem, a 2 mile drive from the hotel. Here you will find an abundance of fresh fish, homemade breads and pastries, organic and home grown fruit and vegetables and much much more.
Alternatively, a larger market with similar products is available in Kenmare, a 20 mile drive. This market is famous for locally produced food. Here you will also find stalls selling gluten free foods, wood fired pizzas, local artisan coffee and homemade cheeses and spices. The market is on in Kenmare on Wednesdays & Fridays.
Also we are located within a mile from a large producer of organic leaves and salads. It is run by a local family and they are always more than willing to show guests around their poly tunnels and vegetable gardens. They supply the hotel here also. You can purchase all your salad needs directly from them also. Please inquire at reception for more information and directions.
We also have our very own walled garden. This is located within the ruins of Derryquin golf course adjacent to the Parknasilla golf club. Again ask at reception if you would like directions to see the glorious vegetables that our garden team grow here. They also grow all the flowers that you see in the hotel here so it really is a beautiful place to visit during the summer months, or at Halloween when they grow pumpkins.
